Read full description of the books Shiva in Steel:A master of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, Saberhagen is one of the most gifted novelists of our time. Now, in Shiva in Steel, he returns to the riveting saga of the Berserkers, a race of intelligent machines devoted to exterminating all organic life.
In a sector of the galaxy occupied by Earth-descended people, one Berserker computer has suddenly and mysteriously developed a tactical strategy unlike anything the human opposition has seen before. Shiva, like the Hindu god of destruction after which it was named, annihilates entire colonies with the help of its fiendish subordinates. Commander Claire Normandy struggles to prepare for Shiva’s attacks, while Pilot Harry Silver realizes that he must deal with his own demons in order to help her. When the Berserkers approach, a decision is made to destroy the destroyer, whatever the cost. Neither side, however, is prepared for the incredible risks that emerge as the attack becomes imminent. Can Normandy, Silver, and their forces face the possibility that something wholly unexpected yet eerily familiar lies gnarled within the steel?
